Join George Jardine, former Adobe Pro Photography Evangelist, in Venice for a power-packed digital photography workshop, designed to strengthen technique and skill and to nurture years of creative inspiration. Participants learn the fundamentals of shooting RAW file images as well as Lightroom ?'s extensive capabilities for image editing, organization, and optimization (anybody preferring to use Photoshop over Lightroom can do so with Adobe Camera Raw). Jardine will help you expand your photographic vision and perfect your technique in sessions that offer demonstrations, assignments, presentations, field trips, and group critiques. Participants will create their most compelling images as we explore all aspects of Venice. On field trips, we cruise the golden-hued lagoon to visit secret gardens and private venues. We dine at the famous Gatto Nero Ristorante on the island of Burano and indulge in Venice's signature tapas and wine treats: cicchetti e ombre. The 2013 Venice Biennale is a short boat ride away.
This 11-day immersion in Italian life, landscape, art, and food provides priceless photography and visual stories to last a lifetime. Lodging (double occupancy with private bath and breakfasts) is at a private, fully modernized Renaissance cultural center in culture-rich Dorsoduro, with inner courtyards, gardens, air-conditioned interiors, and Internet. Or, for a supplement, participants can choose to stay at a nearby three-star luxury hotel.
